Okeechobee County commission increases deficit


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Commissioners
have spent a lot of time talking about cutting
those expenses directly under the county's
control. To date they have taken no action to
actually cut those expenses.
On Wednesday morning, Aug. 18,
Okeechobee County Commissioners spent
two hours again talking about cutting the
budget but the only official action they took
actually increased spending.
Okeechobee County Administrator Lyn-
don Bonner presented three more appor-
tionment methods. The original apportion-
ment method first presented on July 15 did
not take into consideration reductions made
in previous years. These additional meth-
ods were designed to overcome that factor.
However, commissioners were not ready to


take action to adopt any of the methods.
Sheriff Paul May informed the board how
each of the proposed methods would affect
his operations and property appraiser Bill
Sherman voiced his disapproval of the ap-
portionment method in general.
The apportionment method proposed on
July 15 is based on the predicted shortfall for
the fiscal year 2010/11 budget. It removes
all designated funds from the calculations.
Under that method the commissioners were
responsible for 29.3 percent of the shortfall
and the sheriff was responsible for 58.4 per-
cent of the shortfall. In this method and in
the other proposed methods the remainder
of the shortfall was apportioned among the
other constitutional officers.
Mr. Bonner came up with three alterna-
tives that take previous year budget reduc-
tions into account. Method 1 is an average
of four years actual spending and includes


"When we get $100, it's hard to give you $121.
Sometimes you just run out of money. We have to
live with what we have."
Okeechobee County Commission Chairman Clif Bells


all designated and nondesignated funds. It
does not include fiscal year 2009/10. The
county commission's share of the deficit,
under this method, would be 57.7 percent.
The sheriff's apportionment would be 34.1
percent. Method 2 is an average of two prior
years actual spending plus projected actual
spending for fiscal year 2009/10. It includes
all designated and nondesignated funds.
Under this method the board's share of the
deficit would be 55.1 percent and the sher-
iff's would be 36.3 percent. Methods 3 is an
average of the prior two years actual spend-


ing plus projected actual
spending for fiscal year 2009/10. It excludes
all designated funds. Under this method the
board of county commissioners is respon-
sible for 33.7 percent of the shortfall while
53.6 percent is apportioned to the sheriff's
office.
The sheriff submitted a budget of $16.6
million which eliminates 9 positions.
"That is the budget I can run the sheriff's
office on and provide safety for the citizens
and my deputies," the sheriff said, adding
that any additional cuts would cause the

Do your children think education is bor-
ing? "It definitely does not have to be," say Al-
len and Patty Register, owners of Gatorama.
It is the time of year that chirping, grunting
and snapping baby alligators emerge from
their shells to meet the world. Gatorama is
marking this occasion by hosting an "Alliga-
tor Hatching Festival" Aug. 21 through Aug.
31 at their animal park at 6180 U.S. Highway
27, Palmdale, Florida.
"This is a great opportunity for parents
to teach their children about one of natures
fascinating life cycles," says Allen Register.
"For the next two weeks we will welcome
over three thousand alligators into the world
at Gatorama. Guests will actually be able to
see these little baby alligators wiggle out of
the eggs."
Visitors to Gatorama will also be able to
learn about the history of the American al-
ligator and how the populations have been
protected through one of the most truly
successful, sustainable-use management
programs ever implemented. American al-
ligators have been off the endangered spe-
cies list since 1987 and populations are still
growing. Alligator farming is an important
part of the program.
Gatorama opened in 1957 as one of
Florida's first alligator attractions. It is still a
popular tourist attraction as well as an op-
erating alligator farm. One of Gatorama's
main attractions for visitors and professional
photographers is the natural Florida scenery
in which these prehistoric beasts sunbathe
in the warm tropical climate. Giant oak trees
and palm trees cover the fifteen acre attrac-
tion. Visitors will also find other animals
along the covered 1000 foot walkway and
wooden bridge panthers, bobcats, raccoons,
peacocks, ducks and geese all call Gatorama
home, as do six species of crocodiles includ-
ing the American Crocodile. Gatorama is the
largest captive breeder in North America of
the Acutus Crocodile.

Man charged with 'snatching' wallet


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A man has been ar-
rested for allegedly grab-
bing a woman's wallet that
contained $700 in cash and
then running away.
Richard Gene Holcker,
44, U.S. 441 S.E., was ar-
rested Tuesday, Aug. 17,
on felony charges of rob-
bery by sudden snatching
and grand theft. He was
booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail under a
bond of $5,000.


Richard Gene
Holcker


An arrest report by Deputy Tammy Serafi-
ni of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) stated that the woman gave a man a
ride to his home around 1:31 a.m. Tuesday.
The man got out of her car and went inside


Holcker's cabin that is located on a dirt road
between Taylor Creek and the Taylor Creek
Condominiums.
After a few minutes
Holcker left his cabin and
walked up to the woman
as she sat in her car. The
deputy's report stated that
the woman opened the
car door to see what he
wanted and, when she did,
he reached in and grabbed
Jesstarius her wallet from her lap.
Dortch Holcker then reportedly
ran back into his cabin and
locked the door.
After the deputy had arrived at the scene
the woman's friend, Jesstarius Dortch, ap-
parently told her that a white man had stolen
his girlfriend's wallet while she sat in her car
at a nearby convenience store and then fled.


When asked, Dortch reportedly told Deputy
Serafini that he didn't know the suspect and
that he had never seen him before.
However, the deputy later learned
through her investigation that Dortch had
lived with Holcker at that address for several
days and had left on Friday, Aug. 13. That
same witness apparently told the deputy that
they had seen the woman's car at Holcker's
cabin earlier that day and that they had seen
it there several times before.
After arresting Holcker, Deputy Serafini
then arrested Dortch on a misdemeanor
charge of filing a false report to a law en-
forcement officer.
Dortch was booked into the Okeechobee
County Jail but was released on his own re-
cognizance at his first appearance hearing.
The wallet, stated the deputy's report,
has not been recovered.


County jail inmates accused of fighting


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Two inmates at the
Okeechobee County Jail
were arrested after they re-
portedly tried to settle their
differences by fighting.
Luis Gutierrez, 24, Laurel
Ridge Circle, Riviera Beach,
was arrested Tuesday, Aug.
17, on a charge of felony
battery. His bond was set
at $5,000. Also arrested was Luis
David Edward King, 42, Gutierrez
N.W Eighth Ave., Okeecho-
bee, who was charged with misdemeanor
battery. His bond was set at $2,500.
According to an arrest report by Deputy
Paul Jackson of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) the incident oc-
curred Friday, Aug. 13, when the two men
argued over cleaning the dorm in B-Pod.
Gutierrez apparently hit King in the nose and
lip, stated the report.
Then, when King saw his facial injuries,
he returned to confront Gutierrez, continued
the report. This time Gutierrez allegedly hit
the other inmate in the left eye, and it report-
edly swelled shut. King was thought to be the


aggressor this time, said Deputy Jackson.
The report went on to state that King was
taken to Raulerson Hospital where an x-ray
indicated that the orbital
bone around his left eye
was broken.
King, stated the deputy,
was reluctant to report his
injuries because of the oth-
er inmates.
Records indicate that
Gutierrez is being held in
David Edward the county jail on $2,500
vKing bond following his original
King arrest on a felony charge of
carrvinQ a concealed firearm and a misde-


meanor charge of discharging a firearm in
public.
King had been sentenced to spend eight
months in the county jail after being found
guilty of violation of probation driving while
license suspended habitual offender, viola-
tion of probation possession of drug para-
phernalia, amended violation of probation
- driving while license suspended habitual
offender and amended violation of proba-
tion possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jail records show that King was also giv-
en credit on his sentence for the 80 days he
had already spent in fail.

munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

County budget
It seems the Sheriff and the Tax Ap-
praiser have seen this short fall coming for
the past three years, saving millions of dol-
lars by cutting their budgets and in the mean
time our County Administrator and our
County Commissioners have been spend-
ing BIG MONEY i.e., Court House, Ag Center,
EOC, etc., and Wednesday in the meeting
when asked about capital spending Bonner
pipes up and says they have more to pay for.
How is it that these big spenders expect the
494 County Employees and the taxpayers to
carry their spending habits?
I am a county employee and so is my
wife which makes up 100 percent of our in-
come, Now I have done the math and figured
what it would cost my household income
and it adds up to $650 a month right out of
my household income. Now then none of
my bills will go away, none of my taxes will
decrease, gas is not free and I don't drive a
county vehicle.
This is in response to those who think we
can solve the county's budget problems with
grants. Most grants require matching funds,
plus in most cases you can't use grants to pay
for things you already have. Grants are gener-
ally for new project or new programs. I agree
with whoever suggested that the county put
a grant writer on as a contractor to be paid a
percentage if they are successful in obtaining
a grant the county wants and can use. But
don't hold your breath expecting grants to
save the day. We have to make budget cuts.
We have to live within our means.
The county commission has to cut the
budget, we all know that. But they should
not be looking at only the fire department
and sheriff's department to do that. We need
fire protection and law enforcement. Raise
the fire/EMT assessment so that along with
the fees collected it covers that department's
budget 100 percent. For the sheriff's office,
take a hard look at every position and see
if you can't reduce the administration and
support staff instead of the deputies on the
road.


Election
First priority should be the police/fire
department and of course the waste of mon-
ey and they should also come up with some
ideas on how to generate more revenue
here. How is it that we have a county admin-
istrator in office who is NOT an Okeechobee
resident and WHY do we not get to vote for
who can be county administrator? Does any-
one know? Have you noticed, this is the rule
both in counties, state and federal. We do
get to vote, makes us feel good, huh? BUT,
have you noticed, that we don't get to vote
on many of the really important things. We
have no say as to how money is spent, here
in our county, the state or even federally. We
get some voting rights on some issues just to
pacify us.

Tattoos
I am extremely disappointed with the
city of Okeechobee and the powers that be
for looking the other way while underground
tattooing is running rampant! You might say
underground tattooing big deal, but isn't
it? Individuals tattooing out of their homes,
trailers, hotel rooms etc., are doing so in an
unsterile environment! Diseases are being
spread like wildfire and no one seems to
care. What people fail to realize is just be-
cause you are not the one giving or receiving
the unsterile tattoo does not mean you are
not going to come in contact with a person
who has or is. Where are these illegal tattoo-
ers disposing of their contaminated needles?
Are they just throwing them in the garbage
for a sanitation worker to get stuck with and
pass on a disease to his wife and children?
How are they sterilizing the needles they
are using? Hepatitis, Staff, TB, Herpes and
HIV are just a few of the most common and
deadly diseases that can be passed by receiv-
ing a tattoo from someone who is not prac-
ticing universal precautions. There are some
very reputable tattoo shops who are licensed
and certified by the county. At these shops
the health department makes routine inspec-
tions. They also have to work underneath the
supervision of a licensed medical doctor, as
required in section 877.04, Florida Statutes.
So what do you think it will take Okeecho-
bee? A city official's underage child coming
home and spreading one of the before-men-
tioned diseases from an illegal tattoo? I hope
that it does not have to come to this for ev-
eryone in the community's sake.

Health department offers


back-to-school safety tips


As summer break comes to a close and
children return to school, the Florida Depart-
ment of Health encourages parents to make
sure preventive health measures are includ-
ed on their child's back-to-school checklist.
"Keeping students healthy and safe will
give them the best chance to succeed in
school," said State Surgeon General Ana M.
Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. "We want to
make sure parents are taking their children
to their primary care physician for their an-
nual well-child check-up and to make sure
all medical records are in order."
The state of Florida offers KidCare, a
health insurance program for children from
birth through age 18. Children can be eligi-
ble even if one or both parents are working.
Children covered by Florida KidCare are eli-
gible for comprehensive health care, includ-
ing sports physical, doctor visits, check-ups,
immunizations, surgery, prescriptions, vi-
sion and hearing screenings, mental health
care, dental check-ups and hospital stays.
Students with access to these and other pre-
ventative health care services are likely to be
healthier and perform better in school.
"No child in Florida should have to be
without health care," said Joe Chiaro, M.D.,
Deputy Secretary for Children's Medical Ser-
vices. "Insurance improves children's access
to the medications and treatment they need
to control childhood illnesses and decrease
absences from school."
The Department of Health also suggests
parents prepare their children for these oth-
er back-to-school activities:
Parents should speak with their children
about safely traveling to and from school,
which includes planning safe routes, re-
minding them to stay on the sidewalk or in
the bicycle lane and cross the street only at
designated crosswalks, and showing them
how to properly wear a bicycle helmet if
they are biking to school.
Many of Florida's students spend recess
or physical education time outdoors. Parents
should put sunscreen on their children in the
morning, or send it to school with their child
so they can apply it before playing outdoors
so they can be protected from sun exposure.
It is recommended to use a sunscreen that
protects against both UVA and UVB rays and
has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or
higher.

BUDGET
Continued From Page 1

elimination of more positions.
Using the apportionment method an-
nounced on July 15 he said he would have
to eliminate an additional 41 positions for a
total of 50 positions.
Under apportionment method number 1
the sheriff said he would have to cut an ad-
ditional 22 positions for a total of 31. Method
2 requires elimination of 24 additional posi-
tions for a total of 33. Method 3 would cut 37
additional positions for a total of 46.
With these positions eliminated Sheriff
May said, "the sheriff's office is not cut, it is
gutted."
"I stand by my $16.6 million budget,"
the sheriff asserted. "The first job of govern-
ment is to protect its citizens. I cannot cut
this many people and still do the job consti-
tutionally required."
Juanita White, the sheriff's executive sec-
retary, suggested that the EMS assessments
could be used to pay four of the sheriff's of-
fice dispatchers since they dispatch fire and
EMS calls.


SHERIFF
Continued From Page 1

for Sheriff May, as a constitutional officer, to
appeal his budget.
"I did not anticipate the sheriff doing this,"
he said. "There are legal obligations so, safe
to say, we would have to make adjustments.
But, it would be a little premature for me to
comment on how the board will react."
Besides a drastic cut in funds on which
Sheriff May would be expected to operate,
he would also likely have to lay off anywhere
from 31 to 50 employees to meet his appor-
tionment of the county's $3.7 million budget
shortfall. In his last proposal of $16.6 million,
the sheriff removed nine positions.
"Apportionment has the potential to pe-
nalize good performance (of constitutional
officers)," Mr. Bonner told commissioners
Wednesday morning. He then predicted
next year's budget shortfall will be around
$2.6 million.
There are currently four apportionment
methods being considered by commis-
sioners. If they do not accept the $16.6 mil-
lion budget, they would then revert back
to Sheriff May's original spending plan of
$17,059,651 that he gave them in May.
Based on that $17 million budget, com-
missioners could elect to:
require the sheriff to make up 58.4 per-
cent of the shortfall by cutting $2,132,338
from that proposal which would mean that
an additional 41 positions would be removed
for a total of 50;
require the sheriff to make up 34.1 per-
cent of the shortfall by cutting $1,243,480
from that proposal which would mean an
additional 22 positions for a total of 31;
require the sheriff to make up 36.3 per-
cent of the shortfall by cutting $1,324,087
from that proposal which would mean an
additional 24 positions for a total of 33; or,
require the sheriff to make up 53.6 per-
cent of the shortfall by cutting $1,957,626
from that proposal which would mean an
additional 37 positions for a total of 46 posi-
tions.


"When we get $100, it is hard to give you
$121," said Commission Chairman Clif Betts.
"Sometimes you just run out of money. We
have to live with what we have."
He suggested no more new capital proj-
ects.
"I think it is very irresponsible to use the
apportionment method," stated property
appraiser Bill Sherman. He claimed he had
cut his budget 40 percent over the last three
years.
"Some of us saw this thing coming three
years ago and began to prepare for it," he
said. This year he said he was asked to cut
his budget by 12 percent.
"You need to recognize what we have
already done," Mr. Sherman said, adding: "I
don't want to see taxes increased."
"Employees are our biggest asset," as-
serted Commissioner Noel Chandler. He said
when he picked up the telephone to call law
enforcement, he expected a response and
did not mind paying or it.
"The last few years we've spent more
money than we've collected," said Commis-
sioner Ray Domer. "What we are trying to
do is fairly distribute the dollars we have. We
are not trying to take anything back."
He suggested taking bids for operations
of the iail and coiirthoiis secllritv since hv


As of Wednesday afternoon, the sheriff
said the commissioners are leaning toward
making him pay 58.4 percent of the short-
fall.
"For my officers' safety and the safety of
the citizens, I cannot accept that," he said.
Sheriff May could likely be among friends
in Tallahassee as various newspaper reports
indicate that Pasco County Sheriff Bob White
may appeal his budget, as well as Alachua
County Sheriff Sadie Darnell.
According to state statute, the sheriff has
30 days to file an appeal with the Adminis-
tration Commission after he has received
written notice from the county of their bud-
get decision. The executive office of the gov-
ernor will then set a hearing date and then,
within 30 days, will make their decision
known on whether to approve or deny the
sheriff's appeal.
The decision of the commission is final.
Unofficial sources in other law enforce-
ment agencies said they could not remem-
ber a sheriff's appeal ever being denied.
According to the sheriff his office will
have to pay the cost of the appeal, as well
as the cost of an attorney and the sheriff's
travel costs. He said he has been in contact
with the Florida Sheriff's Association and
they have recommended an attorney to han-
dle his appeal.
Sheriff May said he hopes his action won't
create any ill will.
"If I appeal and lose, then I will come
back here like a man and do what I have to
do to get to a figure I can work with. I would
hope if I win, the commissioners will give
me the same respect," he said.
Sheriff May said he e-mailed every sher-
iff in the state and asked about their budget
reductions over the last three years. As of
Wednesday afternoon, he had heard back
from 12 counties and only one replied that
they had cut their budgets by as much as
Sheriff May's. That department had cut their
budgets over the last three years by a total of
11 percent.
"But," said Sheriff May, "they're not being
asked to cut any more."
Sheriff May has cut his budgets by more


law, those areas are the responsibility of the
commissioners, not the sheriff.
Linda McGee, dispatcher with the sher-
iff's office, suggested the commission sell
the agri-civic center, calling it an "absolute
waste." She was also against the renovat-
ing of the courthouse. She said she had not
had a raise in four years. She asked how the
board could continue with expenditures and
expect employees to make cuts.
Commissioner Betts replied that the
board had nothing to do with sheriff's office
salaries. He said the board does not direct
the sheriff how to spend the money allotted
to him.
Rev. Paul Jackson urged budget cuts. He,
too, advocated the sale of the agri-civic cen-
ter.
The board looked at a list of requests for
funding from private organizations. The list
included the health department and Break-
through Recovery, a drug abuse program.
Deputy County Administrator Robbie Char-
ter stated that the health department was
funded at last year's level and Breakthrough
Recovery is funded from a grant. The rest
of the requests, from such organizations as
Shared Services, Okeechobee Main Street,
the business development board and the
vouth livestock show ar not fnlnded The


than 10 percent over that same time period.
And he may not be done yet.
"I think ours will be a unique situation. I
don't think there's been a sheriff in the state
that has appealed his budget after cutting it
three years in a row," Sheriff May stated.
During his meeting Wednesday with
commissioners Sheriff May said the only
way he could meet their budget demands
was to cut people.
"We're down to where there are no op-
tions. I cannot cut this many people and still
run this department," he told the board. "I
stand by the $16.6 million budget. Anything
else will drastically curtail what we're do-
ing."
Throughout the sheriff's portion of
Wednesday's meeting Commissioner
Hoover asked questions and tried to find
remedies for the situation. He said he still
had questions and would get the answers
to those questions by the time the commis-
sioners meet Wednesday, Aug. 25, to again
wrestle with the budget.
He also pointed out that one of Sheriff
May's biggest expenses, isn't actually his.
"It's the county's responsibility to run the
jail and courthouse security," he told his fel-
low board members.
If the $16.6 million budget stands, the
corrections portion of Sheriff May's budget
will drop from $6,674,992 to $6,430,976.
For courthouse security, their total budget
will go from $1,002,929 to $1,003,777. The
increase is due to insurance. The sheriff's to-
tal law enforcement budget will drop from
$9,161,372 to $8,910,656.
Although the commissioners agreed to
meet again next week, they did not say if
they will vote on the sheriff's budget. But, if
they do and they opt to refuse his proposal,
it won't be long before the sheriff gets into
his pickup and heads for the state capital.
"I absolutely hate to do this," he said
with a pained expression. "But if I don't,
I've failed the people who work here and
I've failed the people who elected me. The
figures we've been given to work with are
unconscionable."


health department was funded at $190,000.
That agency reduced their request to
$173,000, a 9 percent reduction. Commis-
sioner Hoover suggested that to be consis-
tent and fair there should be an across the
board 9 percent cut for all private organiza-
tions requesting funds.
In the only official action taken that day,
other than setting future meeting dates, the
board voted to approve the private organi-
zation funding requests and cut each one 9
percent. However, Mrs. Chartier reminded
the board that these requests are not funded
in the proposed budget. The board will have
to find a way to pay for these requests as
they will increase the $3.6 million deficit by
about $178,000.
Commissioner Betts said that the board
and the sheriff's office should not take the
biggest cuts.
A 3 percent pay cut had been suggested
as one of the tools to balance the budget.
Commissioner Betts said that a 3 percent
cut in pay would not hurt an upper level
employee as much as it would a $9 an hour
employee. He suggested eliminating all paid
holidays except Christmas. He noted that
some areas might be overstaffed.
County Attorney John Cassels said that in
his office all employees were cut one hour a
day for a 12 percent savings. He said some
employees came in one hour later and some
left one hour earlier.
Commissioner Betts noted that the coun-
ty may be overstaffed in some areas.
The board will meet again on Wednes-
day, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m. to talk about the bud-
get again.

Area sheriffs battle to


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May has a
lot in common with some other sheriffs in that
they are all battling with their respective county
governments for every penny, and are battling
even harder to keep their employees.
They all also agree on what has put them in
this predicament-Amendment 1.
"With the financial downturn we've got go
ing now it would be bad enough, but Amend
ment 1 only compounds that," said Sheriff May.
"If not for Amendment 1, we would be in a lot
better shape."
"Absolutely," said Glades County Sheriff
Stuart Whiddon. "I believe coastal counties are
hurt the worst, but it's all relative as to how big
you are."
On Jan. 29, 2008, Floridavoters overwhelm
ingly approved the measure that would save an
estimated $10 billion in property taxes. When
added to the $15 billion tax cut approved by
the Florida Legislature in 2007, it could mean
up to $25 billion in property-tax cuts over the
next five years for Florida homeowners and
businesses.
At the heart of the problem for these sheriffs
is the additional homestead exemption benefit
of up to $50,000. The exemption remains at
$25,000 for property with an assessed value up
to $50,000. For property with an assessed value
from $50,000 to $75,000, the new benefit will
increase with the hike in the property's value.
Owners of property with an assessed value of
$75,000 or more, will receive the full $50,000
exemption. Amendment 1 also created a new
$25,000 exemption for business property.
What all this means is that ad valorem
taxes, which are used to fund the office of the
sheriff, will dwindle. And, as those tax dollars
dwindle so do the sheriffs' budgets.
"The county has had to take a 4 percent cut
across the board," said Sheriff Whiddon, who
said he is now in a hiring freeze. "I've got the
same number of deputies (25) I had a year
ago. But, crimes have gone up."
Sheriff Whiddon said he has a total budget
of $4,520,345, of which 45 percent is payroll.
Certified officers there have a pay range of
$33,828 to $54,467.
For St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara
and Captain James Vitali of the DeSoto County
Sheriff's Office, one of the first things to get the
ax was the school resource program.
"We were asked to cut 10 percent (from
his budget) but we came in at 5.29 percent,"
said Sheriff Mascara, whose proposed 2010/11
budget of $62,479,301 is $4,277,155 less than
last year's budget. "We took away over half
of our school resource program. There were
34 deputies in the program and we had to re
move 19. We were anticipating this budget re
duction, so we left some positions open so we
could backfill those positions with the school
resource deputies."
He said the majority of those deputies went
to work in his jail, while some were transferred
to the courthouse and the rest went to work in
his road patrol department.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office
(SLCSO) employs 333 people in its law en
forcement division, 267 in detention and 34 in
its judicial department. The department also
has 123 civilians in its administrative division,
which means there are 3.7 deputies for each
administrative person.
For Sheriff Whiddon, his ratio of certified of
ficers to administrative staff is 1.75 to 1.
Capt. Vitali said DeSoto County Sheriff Wil
liam Wise originally had to do away with the
entire school resource program. However, in


an Aug. 19 e-mail Capt. Vitali said the superin
tendent of schools has entered into a contract
whereby the school board would fund 60 per
cent of the salaries and benefits for two school
resource officers. DeSoto county commission
ers would fund the remaining 40 percent.
The captain stated in his e-mail that a final
meeting on this contract is slated for Monday,
Aug. 23.
Capt. Vitali said the total budget for the
DeSoto County Sheriff's Office (DCSO) for fis
cal year 2010/11 will be $8,205,914. He said
that includes 57 people in the law enforce
ment division, of which 46 are sworn officers;
36 people are in corrections; and, six people in
court services.
He went on to indicate that the starting
salary for deputies and corrections officers is
$32,494.44. Salaries for clerical staff start at
$20,741.24.
For Sheriff May, he employs a total of 217
people. Of that total, 123 are in the law en
forcement division. Eighty of those are certified
officers (65.04 percent), while 43 (34.96 per
cent) are in the administration division. His to
tal proposed budget for 2010/11 is $16,606,802,
which is a reduction of 4.69 percent from last
year's spending plan. With that budget, Sheriff
May has cut his budgets in the last three years
by more than 10 percent.
Besides the disastrous effect of Amendment
1 on their budgets, all of those interviewed also
have another common denominator-battles
with their boards of county commissioners
and county administrators.
While Capt. Vitali was quite vocal about
the DCSO's budget battles with county lead
ers, Sheriff Mascara said simply that "There are
good days, and bad days."

City employees may not get a raise in the new city budget


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It looks like the new fiscal year budget
for the City of Okeechobee might not con-
tain the 1.5 percent step increase employees
have received in the past.
At a workshop held Tuesday evening,
Aug. 17, Okeechobee City Councilmen were
divided 3 -2 on the issue. Mayor James Kirk
and Councilman Mike O'Connor were in fa-
vor of the step increase while councilmen
Dowling Watford, Clayton Williams and
Lowery Markham were against it.
"We've got to take care of our people,"
said the mayor.
"It would destroy morale," Councilman
O'Connor said of discontinuing the pay in-
crease. "This is the most demoralizing thing
I ever heard of. This is wrong."
"I don't see it as demoralizing in this
economy," was the opinion of Councilman
Williams. He said it would be more demor-
alizing not to have a job.
The council did agree on a village rate
of 7.2432 which equates to about $7.23 in
taxes for every $1,000 of assessed value.
One mil equals one dollar in taxes for every
$1,000 of assessed value. This village rate
is one half mil above the current year's rate.

Lecrenier completes basic
training in South Carolina
Army Pvt. Joseph P. Lecrenier has gradu-
ated from basic combat training at Fort Jack-
son, Columbia, S.C.
During the nine weeks of training, the
soldier studied the Army mission, history,
tradition and core values, physical fitness,
and received instruction and practice in ba-
sic combat skills, military weapons, chemi-
cal warfare and bayonet training, drill and
ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship,
armed and unarmed combat, map read-
ing, field tactics, military courtesy, military
justice system, basic first aid, foot marches,
and field training exercises.
He is the son of Michael Lecrenier of
Okeechobee.
Lecrenier is a 2006 graduate of Okeecho-
bee High School.


"It's common knowledge
we have reserves for years to
come."
City Administrator Brian Whitehall

However, due to declining property values,
it will bring in less money the current year's
village rate. Therefore it will be necessary
to transfer about $280,000 from savings to
balance the budget.
"It's common knowledge we have re-
serves for years to come," said City Adminis-
trator Brian Whitehall. The city has $1.9 mil-
lion in interest from the 1995 sale of utilities
to the Okeechobee Utility Authority and the
sale of other assets. City reserves are well
over the two months of operating expenses
required by auditors. In fact, auditors have
remarked that the city has ample reserves.
In spite of the increased village rate,
some city residents will see lower tax bills
because of declining property values.
Councilmen agreed to fund Shared Ser-
vices at the requested $8,000. Okeechobee
Main Street had requested $15,000 and staff
had recommended $13,500. The council
decided to eliminate any contribution to the
Main Street organization. The city's $4,544
commitment to Indian River State College
for the new public safety complex was di-
vided over the next two years. The Business
Development Board of Okeechobee had


requested $10,000. The city only agreed to
contribute $5,000.
Since this was a workshop, no official
action could be taken. The first public hear-
ing on the budget will be held Sept. 14 at 6
p.m.
Turning to the agenda for the regular
meeting, the council conducted their annual
review of fees. They looked at a list of ap-
plications processed from mid 2009 through
mid 2010 with the current fees well as the
actual costs. However, upon the recommen-
dation of the city clerk, they took no action,
thus allowing the current rates to stand.
The board also held the first reading and
set a date of Sept. 14 as the final public hear-
ing date for an ordinance extending the right

Local man arrested, facing several felony charges


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man, who was released
from prison earlier this year, was arrested on
a number of felony charges Saturday after
he was accused of battering his pregnant
girlfriend.
Johnny Ray Johnson, 47, S.E. 33rd St.,
was arrested Aug. 14 on the felony charges
of false imprisonment, possession of a fire-
arm by a convicted felon, aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon, fleeing and eluding
a law enforcement officer, aggravated bat-
tery on a pregnant female and criminal mis-
chief. He was also arrested on misdemeanor
charges of resisting a law enforcement offi-
cer without violence and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
He is being held in the Okeechobee
County Jail under a total bond of $160,250.
According to an arrest report by Deputy
Corporal Chris Hans of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) everything
started around 5 p.m. in the parking lot of
a restaurant on U.S. 441 S.E when Johnson
saw his pregnant girlfriend sitting in a vehicle
with a male friend in front of the restaurant.
The report stated Johnson pulled the 27-
year-old man out of the passenger side, and
then entered the vehicle and hit the woman
several times in the face.
Cpl. Hans said the man's elbow was
scratched and he had an open wound that
was bleeding. The woman was also injured,
the report stated.
At 9:35 p.m. Saturday OCSO Deputy
Howard Pickering was sent to a residence in
reference to the theft of a gun, ammunition
and a pair of binoculars that were apparently
taken from a vehicle by Johnson.
Deputy Pickering and five other deputies
set up surveillance at a home on N.W 144th
Ave. and in a few minutes Johnson drove up


to the residence in a red Chevrolet pickup.
Deputy Pickering's report goes on to state
that a woman was seen in the truck with
Johnson. The woman was
Johnson's former girlfriend
whom he had battered ear-
lier.
When Johnson saw the
deputies he tried to pull
away from the residence,
but Deputy Pickering had
blocked the driveway with
his patrol vehicle. Accord-
Johnny Ray ing to his report Deputy
Johnson Pickering got out of his
vehicle, pulled his weapon
and told Johnson: "Don't do it Johnny! Don't
do it!"
Johnson reportedly jumped out of his
truck and began to run. He was quickly
caught by OCSO Lieutenant Gary Bell.
Deputy Pickering said a .22 caliber hand-
gun, .22 caliber ammunition and a pair of
binoculars were found in the pickup driven
by Johnson.
According to the woman, Johnson alleg-
edly kept her in the truck at gun point and
threatened to kill her.
She reportedly told Deputy Pickering that
when Johnson saw the OCSO vehicle block-
ing the driveway he said, "If that's Sport
(Deputy Pickering) blocking me from leav-
ing, I'm going to kill him."
The report went on to state that when
Johnson was placed under arrest, a pipe,
similar to those normally used to smoke
crack cocaine, was found in his shirt pock-
et.
Johnson was later charged with criminal
mischief after he reportedly kicked out a side
window of OCSO Deputy Bryan Holden's
patrol unit.
A record's search indicated that on Feb.
27, 2007, Johnson was sentenced to serve


four years in prison after he was found guilty Correctional Institute on Feb. 22, 2010.

Okeechobee commission candidates questioned


Editor's note: On Aug. 24, in the primary
election, Okeechobee County voters regis
tered as Republicans will choose between
Bryant Culpepper and Jared Figley for the
Republican nominee for the County Com-
mission District 2 seat. Democrats will
choose between Noel Chandler and Gene
Woods for the Democratic nomination.
The winners of the two primaries will be
on the ballot in the November election.
The Okeechobee News invited readers
to pose questions to the candidates.
The candidates were given the ques
tions in writing and asked to respond in 100
words or less. For more questions and an
swers, see the Sunday edition of this news
paper.

QUESTION: In your opinion, is the
Agri-Civic Center a drain or an asset
to the county? What changes, if any,
would you propose to the manage-
ment of the facility? What changes, if
any, would you propose for the facility
itself?
CHANDLER: I
think the Agri-Civic
Center can be a
greater asset to the
county if marketed
in a more aggressive
manner. The pur-
pose of the Agri-Civic
Center is for local use
as well as stimulating Noel Chandler


our economy by bringing in tourists to spe-
cial events during which they spend money
in Okeechobee.
CULPEPPER: It is
a drain on the County.
If the Ag-Civic Center
was air conditioned I
feel it would be much
more enticing to hold
concerts and trade
shows. It is too hot in
the summer and too
cold in the winter. Bryant
FIGLEY: I have vis- Culpepper
ited other Ag centers,
and have seen them grow over time. I would
have preferred to
have seen ours grow
in the same manner.
Moving forward, it
is an asset to this
county. In the short
term, the ventila-
tion system and
lighting needs to be
addressed. I would
Jared Figley really like to see the
note paid down be-
fore further improvements are made.
WOODS: Yes, it is a drain on the county
and the taxpayers. I would suggest to the
other commissioners to lease it, sell it or
shut it down.

If county employees have to take a


CaOkeechobees LongestEstabished
Okeechobee's Longest-Estab


CAC.4022 CAC057219 CAC042747


pay cut, should the county commis-
sioners also take a voluntary cut and
return part of their salary to the coun-
ty as a donation? Why or why not?
CHANDLER: We, the commissioners,
have already agreed to take the same per-
centage cut across the board as our county
employees.
CULPEPPER: County Commissions sal-
aries are set by the State. I have promised
if elected to the Commission I will double
whatever percentage salary cut the em-
ployees are forced to accept, and give that
amount back to the general fund.
FIGLEY: If county employees are forced
to take pay cuts, then the commissioners

-


should lead by example. Ben Franklin once
noted, that high salaries for government of-
fices are the best way to attract scoundrels
and drive from the halls of public office
those men who pos-
sess true merit and
virtue. As a matter of
honor, I would look to
my own salary first.
WOODS: Yes,
the Commissioners
should also take the
same pay cut that their
employees take.
Everyone should
be treated equally. Gene Woods

Brahman volleyball has high hopes for the season


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Despite having only one returning senior,
Brahman volleyball coach Todd Jones is cer-
tain that his team could be one of the better
squads in the area.
Last year's team lost three outstanding
seniors in Megan Clements, Monica Koger


Rebekah Bryan is expected to be one
of the standout players on this year's
talented lady volleyball team.


and Caitlyn Gaucin but added a strong group
of freshmen who have played many years in
club volleyball. The only returning senior
starter is LeAnna Cotton. Also on the team
after a year off is softball standout Naomi
Stevens.
The team also has a solid corps of under-
classmen in juniors Paige McCrary, Rebekah
Bryan, and newcomers Jordan Maynard,
Taydra Delprete and Maranda Serrano.
There is also a solid group of sophomores
who played varsity last year in Darby Jones,
Katie Ward, Maci Thomas and Sarah Davis.
Last years team finished second in the
district and lost in the first round of the state
post season tournament to Merritt Island.
"We have an incredibly talented team. I
can't think of a time when Okeechobee had
six front row players that are strong offensive
players. In the past we've had 2 or 3 good
offensive players. This will give us more op-
tions for our setter," Jones added. Jones said
when he rotates girls in off the bench he is
confident they will also perform well.
Jones said an obvious area of improve-
ment on the team is passing. He compared
many of his players passing skills to those of
college volleyball players.
Jones said he will also have a tough time
when he selects the six girls who will serve
during a match because all of the players
have excellent serves.
"I think a district title is possible this year.


Senior looks for elusive district title


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
LeAnna Cotton will be counted on this
year for leadership on an Okeechobee High
School Brahman volleyball team that could
have enough talent to win District 14-4A.
Cotton has played varsity ball for three
years. She is also a standout softball player.
She has achieved excellence in the classroom
as well as she takes dual enrollment courses.
She has a 3.7 grade point average.
Cotton said she is very impressed with the
talent on this year's team, "I need to really
step up this year and play to the best of my
ability," she said. "I think this team should
come together. There is no reason why we
can't win districts this year."
Cotton said the younger girls are go get-
ters and play very well together. She said as
long as all the players do their jobs the team
should be very good.
Cotton attended an elite camp for volley-
ball players at the University of Central Flor-
ida this summer. She said she learned a lot
about playing defense at this camp. She said
she also has worked hard to improve her left
hand on the court.
"I'm hitting the ball better this year. I re-
ally struggled with my left hand last year," she
noted.
Cotton could end up as an outside hitter
or return as setter this year. She said she will
play whatever position the coach assigns her
if it will help the team's performance.
Coach Todd Jones said he expects a lot of
great things from Cotton this year. He noted
she will be counted on for leadership and
guidance but will also be a steady influence.
"She will be an incredible asset to the team
this year. Her hitting has become quite pow-

for the 2010 lady volleyball team.
erful. I think she can be indispensable to the
team with her play at the net."
Jones said Cotton has the talent to play
college volleyball and has always wanted to
improve her game.
Cotton said she would like to pursue a
nursing career and would also like to play
softball and volleyball in college. She said she
loves both sports so much it would be hard
for her to choose between them.
She also thanked Coaches Jacque Robin-
son and Jones for their assistance during her
career. She stated she wouldn't be as good
a player if it weren't for their hard work and
guidance.
Cotton said a district title this year would
be a dream come true. "That would mean
everything to me especially during my senior
year. I feel we can beat Jensen Beach this
year if we play close as a team."


We haven't had one in about 10 years, and
I feel we can take Jensen Beach this year,"
he noted.
Suncoast is also expected to be a com-
petitive squad this year. Jones said all of
the other schools are likely not at the level
of Okeechobee this year. "Nobody else is a
contender unless they really come out of the
woodwork."
George May has returned to the program
after a few years away and he will coach the
Brahman Junior Varsity squad.
Jones said there are so many talented
players that everyone must fight for a roster


of success. "This lends itself to some awe-
some things in the future for us. We have
only two seniors this year so we can defi-
nitely fill those spots. It is going to be tough
to make the varsity squad over the next few
years."
Jones said all of the girls know they have
to perform and have to be on top of their
game to keep their spots. "The girls know if
they put the time in and improve, that they
can win a position. It won't matter how old
you are or what grade you are in. I feel if you

Brahman football team looking forward to season


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School Brahman
Coach Myron Jackson has decided who will
start when the Brahmans open the season
next Friday, August 27, in a pre season clas-
sic at home against Fort Pierce Central.
Unlike last year when the Brahmans
depth was often questioned, Coach Jackson
had some difficult decisions to make be-
cause a lot of position battles featured qual-
ity players.
Jack Radebaugh won the battle to be the
starting QB. T'Ronte Files will be the starting
running back. Aukeemian Mills and Erick
McQueen will be the starting wide receivers.
Tyler Ott will open at tight end. The offensive
line includes tackles Benjamin Estey, and
Harrison O'Connor, guards John Kemp and
Brant Harden and center Thor Harden. Jose
Garcia will start at full back.


Special to the Okeechobee News


"From where we are last season we can
only go up. We are a year older and wiser.
My goal is 40 players on the sideline. That
way we won't have to depend on the same
kids on offense, defense and special teams.
Guys can focus more on their jobs. Those
that aren't in the starting lineup will be guys
that can help us out in special teams."
On defense, David Carter and Brant Hard-
en will open at defensive end. Cody Walker
and Thor Harden will start at defensive tack
le. The linebackers are John Kemp, Ronald
Jackson and Jose Santibanez. The second-
ary includes cornerback Algeron Morris and
Lavante Spivey, and safeties Jesse Thomas
and McQueen.
Coach Jackson also intends to use D.J.
Washington like a starter as he will see time
at QB, running back and wide receiver. He
also intends to use Alonzo Coleman a lot on
offense.


Fishing success
Taylor Creek Bass Club member Dar-
rell Brackin took top honors on Lake
Okeechobee, at the Taylor Creek Bass
Club of Okeechobee Tournament,
held on Saturday, Aug. 13. Darrell
Brackin (photo above left) brought
in five fish for a total of 13.23 Ibs.
to the scales for the win on a great
fishing day. Vicky Brackin -- Darrell's
wife and fishing in her boat -- (Photo
above) won the Big Fish Award 5.53
Ibs. and second place with 10.95 Ibs.
Les Tory (photo at left) followed in
third place with 10.08 Ibs. Joe Smith
placed fourth with 9.04 Ibs. The Tay-
lor Creek Bass Club meets at the
Buck Head Ridge VFW Post 9528 on
the second Thursday of each month.
Tournaments are held the following
weekend. New boaters and (espe-
cially) non-boaters are welcome. For
information call Dave Stout at 863-
467-2255 The club also sponsors and
presents the annual Lee McAllister
Memorial Kid's Fishing Festival.


"We're still pretty young and we feel that
we have guys playing up front that can be
difference makers for us. Last year we had
trouble finding players. If you don't show up
everyday this year, you stand the chance of
losing your position."
Jackson said he also is impressed with his
team's desire to win. He said the kids don't
want to settle for second place.
Last weeks summer camp two per day
practices did wonders in improving the re-
lationship of the players with each other.
Coach Jackson said they spent a lot of time
with each other and got to know each other
better.
"There was a lot of competition for jobs
this year and everybody got the same op-
portunity. We want kids who take advantage
of their opportunities. Those are the kind of
people we need to be successful," he add-
ed.
Another freshman who made varsity was
Bobby Joe Garza who will provide depth on
the offensive line.
Jackson also has worked with a number
of players to make them more versatile. He
said if the player can play more than one po-
sition that can help increase his value to the
team.
The coaching staff has also focused on
conditioning so all of the players will be
strong later in the game. There could be


between 35 and 40 players on the sideline
for the first game an increase over previous
years.
Jackson said an area of improvement for
the team will be at the line of scrimmage.
The team returns four starters on the offen-
sive line and all of them are vastly improved.
He also said the team has more breakaway
speed and weapons on offense. He predict-
ed McQueen Washington and Mills have
the speed to make big players.
"It's our job as coaches to make sure we
have them in the right position so that they
can make players for us," Jackson added.
Coach Jackson said he won't know how
good his team can be until they play another
team. He said the players and coaches are
anxious to measure themselves when Fort
Pierce Central comes to town next week.
"This time of year always gets me excited.
You can't help but just feel the excitement.
It's hot for everyone else but its football
season for us. The guys are excited and are
thinking about their first game. Fort Pierce
Central gives us an opportunity to measure
ourselves a little bit. I hope people come out
and fill the stadium with purple and gold
and cheer on the Brahmans," he said.


Brahman defensive coordinator Rex Erwin explains different schemes and play
calls during the classroom part of football at a recent Brahman practice.

officer Beth Albert stated that she inspected

Seniors plan on improvement this year


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Three seniors on the var-
sity football squad have worked
hard in the offseason and claim
they can't wait to play in their
first game next week.
Benjamin Estey will be the
starter at right offensive tackle
this year. He is perhaps the
most improved Brahman as
he worked hard and added 20
pounds of muscle to his frame in
the off season.
He said this year should be a
lot better than last year when the
Brahmans were winless, "I think
it will be a great year. I have a lot
of heart and I love football."
Estey will also be a leader


on the offensive line. He said
he knows his teammate's as-
signments and wants to be a
leader who communicates with
his teammates. "I'm pretty mo-
tivated to get better every day
and also help improve my team-
mates."
His parents are Suzanne and
William Estey. Ben has lived in
Okeechobee all his life. He said
he appreciates Coach Jackson
for all his advice and guidance.
"He has been a big help to
motivate me. I really increased
by strength and power in the off
season and that says a lot about
Coach Jackson."
David Carter will be a starter
at defensive end this year. He
also put in a lot of hard work in

the offseason as he showed up
for every off season workout. He
said the team also knows their
playbook better and won't be
thinking on the field, just react-
ing to the play.
"We don't have to think about
where we need to line up. I think
we'll be a lot faster and a lot bet-
ter this year."
Carter said he expects a lot of
competition for starting jobs this
year. He noted he tries as hard as
he can to earn his spot and the
respect of his teammates.
"I feel football is life and you
got to live it. I think the team
will be a lot better this year," he
added.
Carter said he has been espe-
cially impressed with freshman
Cody Walker and how he has
played at defensive tackle. He
said that Walker will fill a hole
from last year's squad.
Carter said he wants to let op-
ponents know that he will do ev-
erything he can to help his team
win. "No tackle who lines up in
front of me will stop me from
doing what I have to do."
Carter added he is glad to see
more players on the field. He
said all the kids in school want to
be part of the success this year. "I
can tell the difference. Everyone
can see it. Were serious about
football this year and we're go-
ing to win some games."
Senior Erick McQueen missed
his junior year and is anxious to
get back on the football field. He


was one of the contributors to a
winning squad as a sophomore
and he plans to bring a winning
attitude to this team.
"It is very exciting to be back.
I hope to push everybody so we
can be better than last year," he
said.
McQueen said a lot of young
guys like T'Ronte Files, Auke-
emian Mills and Deforest Shanks
have showed leadership this
year. He said his role as a senior
is to push them to work hard.
"I've learned you can't take
life for granted. I want to work
harder because as an older guy
everyone looks up to me."
McQueen is also making a
position change to wide receiver
and safety. He said he is willing
to play wherever he can to help
the team.
He will also be counted on to
be a leader on defense, "I think
we were missing some leader-
ship on defense last year. I will
try to be that leader. I've been fo-
cused on my play on defense."
McQueen thanked his par-
ents Carla McQueen and Eric
Frazier for their support and the
coaches for giving him another
chance. He vowed to stay out of
trouble and get his course work
done this year, "It has been hard
for me. A lot of people have
doubted me and felt they were
taking a chance with me. I want
to get away from that negativity.
I will work hard and I want this
year to be memorable."


Okeechobee News/Charles Murphy
Erick McQueen plans on turning the Brahmans into an of-
fensive machine this season.
